the debt ceiling so we should do it. we need to, you know, have a budget and need to reduce the deficit and need to make investments for the future. what he wanted to talk about is what a great country it is and how we need to make sure it's a country that offers opportunity for all americans and expands the middle class. >> you have been in the trenches. you know how divided congress is. do you think by not using words like compromise, by not reaching out in that very high profile speech, that it was a missed opportunity as some republicans are suggesting? >> well, i think that, you know, it's a little bit of looking backwards and the president was looking forward. i think what he was really saying is and reflecting in a way on his last two years, is he sought to compromise and compromise and compromise again and has gotten so little from the republican leadership. i think what the speech yesterday was about is we need to move forward and if going to, you need to know i'm going to be a determined president. we know the path forward. we may disagree on some things but let's get done wha
. chairman, i believe that congress needs to raise the debt ceiling to honor our commitments to our seniors, our veterans and that raising the debt ceiling is only about paying bills that we already racked up. i also believe the best way to achieve these goals is through a long-term balanced approach. it is not yet clear to me that this bill is a viable vehicle to achieve those goals. i, unlike my chairman, have not had a long enough time to look at this. our committee hasn't had a long enough time. we just got it this morning. so as you know we just received it. sorry. yesterday. considering the deals with how we fund the government, that potentially raises constitutional questions, i think it deserves a serious look. as we continue to -- i hope this committee will grant an open rule so we will -- so we can see if these improvements need to be made. we will have the opportunity to do so. house administration is responsible for the members' pay, component of -- many component of this proposal. among our concerns is the constitutionality, a section that's drafted. we know the 27th amendment
'd be hesitant to raise the debt ceiling or just put it on the side for right now. we need real solutions. what he's been outlining here are the true problems that we face today. something, as much as i was in awe seeing the president today and hearing his beautiful speech, one thing that candidate obama when he's running does, if he's very successful at dividing people, but our problems are not about racism or anger or rich or poor, they're numbers and once we realize we can come together and fix the problems and theer mat m and it's sheer mathematics, and only one third of the picture here, the republicans we don't have much of a voice i'd like to see the president and senate work with us. >> we lost the election overall and happened before like jack kemp took that to develop new ideas. i think we need to be focused on the budget and fiscal responsibility, but we've got to think anew and coming up with conservative solutions and i think we can reform some of the welfare programs that have grown the last four years and i think we can look at crony capitalism. we're viewed, republicans, as the
're going to vote to extend the debt ceiling for a couple of months and that's good. we don't want to be in a situation where we're defaulting or the threat of default, but i think they need to tie that back to something and maybe it's not the big and grand bargain with the entitlement plans right now, but i think at a minimum they have to tie it back to getting a budget at the senate, that begins the conversation. >> greta: it seems to me one of the large problems that small businesses have, correct me if i'm wrong, there's no certainty because congress and the president never make up their mind and they bring everything to the brink and pass something for three months. you don't no he what's going to happen with our tax structure or the debt ceiling. am i right? they don't sit down and make a decision that the lack of impact to make decisions in your business. >> one thing is a lack of certainty and the things we're certain of for small businesses, and hate to keep beating a dead horse, president obama is one of the job killers in america. and small businesses are going to do eve
these grants made and then there is no follow-up. in light of what is going on in the nation, debt ceiling, in light of what is really going on here in the city and county of san francisco we need to involve the constituents, because the taxpayers that pay it, you may get the money from the state or the federal, it is the taxpayers who pay the taxes and we need to have some accountability and some transparency. i am not saying that this contractor is going to do his job i hope he does his job quarterly or twice a year or for the duration of this contract we get some reports. so that we can read and see what is happening. thank you very much. >> is there any other member in of the public that would like to make comments? seeing none public comment is close. (gavel) this is an action item. >> mr. chair? >> i know there is question about work between the mta and the transportation authority. can you talk about those issues and how they were resolved? >> both agencies have responsibility especially mta which has legislation for originating parking in public policy of the transportatio
up a clean... they're going to send us a clean debt ceiling bill. the other stuff on it will athat when we need to. i'm glad we're not facing crisis here in a matter of a few days. >> sreenivasan: president obama said he wanted a longer-term extension of the debt ceiling. but a white house spokesman said today the president will accept a short-term bill if it reaches his desk. without an extension, the government could run out of money within a month. a deep freeze lingered in the upper midwest today with temperatures dropping in some places to minus 30 fahrenheit. wind chills made it even worse. across the region, people bundled up to face the cold, and some schools closed. frigid arctic air swept down from canada last saturday. authorities attribute at least three deaths to the weather so far. american military transport planes have joined the french effort to repel islamist rebels in mali. pentagon spokesman george little confirmed today that u.s. c-17's have flown five missions to the african nation in recent days. they ferried more than 80 french troops and 120 tons of equipme
and again washington will work these things out, they will figure out the debt ceiling. are you now bleaker in your outlook because of what you have heard yesterday? >> i think we will get a debt to income because republicans poll numbers are so terrible. the last thing they need is another pr debacle so they will cave on the debt ceiling i'm quite convinced. sequesters different from the republicans can demand some offset in spending cuts, so we will have a big debate on new spending restraint in the next month or two. dennis: if you heard the president's speech yesterday, i didn't hear the word deficit hardly at all. i did not hear about the growth of the economy, just everybody makes sure they have to have a chicken in every pot. >> you can be guaranteed on the state of the union address in on the 12th of february he will talk about new investments, high-speed rail, that means spending and it is not going to happen, nowhere in the world that can get through the house. dennis: thank you for being with us today. cheryl: president obama tries to push through his agenda for the next four yea
'd rather have a fought over the debt ceiling in three months, i don't have a problem with that, i need to hear that commitment, they've been asked and they're going to be asked again today at the conference meeting, to make the commitment that we're going to be on a path to balance in 10 years. if they're willing to fight with us on that, i think i an stand with them. >> thank you. you talked about this 10-year balance, you've also talked about the sequester for things like holding the line on the sequester. what specifically does that mean? does that mean you're going to hold the line on a set of principles to try to replace those cuts with other cuts, or are they just going to let the sequester take effect? what's your understanding? >> the numbers with the sequester is either sticking to that number so letting the sequester take effect or replacing the cut in the military and other programs with other cuts that get us to 974. so we're -- if you're ticking to the -- sticking to the 974 number, which i believe was the r.n.c. number last year in our budget but that's what it means to m
a clean -- they are going to send us a clean debt ceiling bill. the other stuff on it, we'll approach it when we need to. glad we're not facing a crisis here in a matter of a few days. >> at the white house, jay carney signaled president obama would sign it. >> it still has toover come concerns expressed by member of the hus and the senate before it passes both chambers to reach the president's desk. if it does and it reaches the president's desk, he would not stand in the way of bill becoming law. >> so it appears that pressure is building on senator reid to act. meanwhile late today, sources say speaker boehner told g.o.p. members behind closed dors the house budget chairman paul ryan is working on a budget plan that would balance within ten years. boehner says he applauds that goal and shares it. >> bret: mike emanuel live on the hill. thank you. more than 24 hours after promising to respond to the threat of climate change, president obama has something else to respond to tonight. nebraska's governor approved a new route for the controversial keystone oil pipeline to put the ball s
's on the debt ceiling? guest: the debt ceiling is set to expire $6.4 trillion. we need to raise the nation's are one limits. republicans do not like that idea without having spending cuts. they have come up with a plan to extend it for a few months until may. if the democrats in the senate have not reduce a budget with spending cuts, they will set aside the pay of members of congress. it is a tricky maneuver on their part. their goal is to get senate democrats to pass this. the senate has been unable to pass a budget for the past four years. it will be a days off between the parties over the debt limit. we will get a good look at that legislation. host: senate democrats said they will pats a budget. guest: it may not include the spending cuts republicans are looking or. host: larry, san diego, democratic caller. caller: i disagree with your host that after 18 months or two years obama will no longer be effect it. -- effective. when that the house. he may be able to do more in his last two years and his last four years. guest: if the democrats can take back the house and picked up some seat
saying we'll have bitter fights perhaps debt ceiling shutting down the government, perhaps begun control. they will be tough fights and the american people need to be ready for that. >> john: george, it seemed--what are your thoughts on that before i move on. do you think that was a pretty direct calling out of mitch mcconnell and the republicans? >> yes, look over the next few months we'll we you'll have a big fight over the sequester the funding of the government and the debt ceiling. i think he's trying to pull out the weeds of that because none of it is the soaring lofty rhetoric. i think he's trying to push past that mess to what he would care to do. >> john: alex, after seeing how large a role the hispanic vote played in the 2012 election and how poorly mitt romney played to that demographic. let's not forget his univision appearance what i call gringo star. >> they may need to work out what the messaging is going to be on this site. if they don't you can bet the democrats will use it in the the 2014 midterm. you remember in 2010 when democrats could not get the minority voters out
on the debt ceiling? the debt ceiling is set to expire, 16.4 trillion. so we need to raise the nation's borrowing limit in one way or another. the republicans don't like the idea of doing that without having commensurate spending cuts. they have a plan to extended until may. and then if the democrats in the senate have not produced a budget that includes spending cuts, they will set aside the pay of members of congress. so it is a tricky maneuver on their part. their goal is to get senate democrats to pass a budget that includes spending reductions. the senate has not been able to pass a budget for the past four years. democrats will resist the idea of any kind of spending cuts. it's going to be a real face-off between the two party is over the debt limit. tomorrow we will get a good look at that legislation. host: senate democrats have said they will pass. a pass guest: but it may not include spending cuts republicans are looking for. it's not necessarily an agreement. it might seem so on the surface. host: larry in san diego, democratic caller. welcome to the conversation. caller: t
to the fact that they've moved off the fight on the debt ceiling a few months. he believes he can deal with them and, as you heard, get some kind of grand bargain. i need to be convinced of that, wolf. >> part two of your interview coming up later. >> he tells us, how does he know when the president is mad at him. >> interesting to see that. thank you. good work. >>> in a moment, the latest on the breaking news we've been following a shooting at a community college in houston, texas. there's going to be a news conference from the sheriff there. we'll update you with what is going on. humans. even when we cross our t's and dot our i's, we still run into problems. namely, other humans. at liberty mutual insurance, we understand. that's why our auto policies come with accident forgiveness if you qualify, where your rates won't go up due to your first accident, and new car replacement, where, if you total your new car, we give you the money for a new one. call... to talk to an insurance expert about everything else that comes standard with our base auto policy. and if you get into an accid
the "state of the union" and see the budget. but republicans decided not to make the debt ceiling a big issue. was a three budget extension and a month supporter of no pay with no budget but we need to focus on spending. it is a problem but we do need more investment was critical infrastructure but they have to be coupled with a concrete and forceful proposal to deal with deficits. neil: hope springs eternal as they went to the party of president has been reelected to undo what bill clinton tried to do not big government as the enemy but efficient doing the will of the people without wasting the money but this president might be the most liberal since fdr not to know if his way is the right way but it could be his way or the highway. we will see you tomorrow.

are not hiking the debt ceiling unless you make these cuts now. we have over $16 trillion in debt. we can't afford it. i don't want to have this conversation every couple of months. do your job and barack obama, hold them accountable. >> neil: there is this thing about double treatment that is not quite the same when it comes to blaming republicans for being obstructionists by not wanting to increase the debt ceiling when the media didn't do that when every major democrat, including a then senator barack obama did the same thing seven years ago. >> you can't expect the media to do the job they are supposed to do. they won't hold the republicans and democrats equally accountable. so the g.o.p. needs their own marketing and p.r. team -- >> neil: i think they are running from their own shadow. they need more time to get this set and the prerogatives. but to the president, i'm sure, it sends a message, weak, weak, weak. >> they are under the impression, if they give an inch, the president will say, they are doing their best. this is not how it works. this president compromises when it's in hi

it so i really think that we should not be using the debt ceiling for leverage. i think it's bad for the economy. >> you have said that in terms of finding ways to raise revenue, the president's proposed limit on tax deductions is the most likely path. can you walk me through how you see this thing happening? >> well, there have to be more revenues. we have to as the president said yesterday have a balanced package in deficit reduction. and i think looking at the deductions will be one route doing that. we have to be careful. i have made that clear. but we're going to have to look at that. as one of the techniques to raise revenues it has to be balanced. we need to look at cuts in programs, discretionary programs have already been cut. we need to be careful. we need to remember what's at stake in those programs. we need revenues as well as program cuts. >> obviously, we have a lot of investors, people who watch the markets, watching us right now. this idea of repealing carried interest tax breaks, are you in favor of that and do you think that idea would make its way through the
